, syria, and the broader muslim world before the united nations general assembly. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with details. good morning. >> reporter: this is a big deal. not only for the president explaining where the world stands but for him politically. >> but first things first -- we've got an election. >> reporter: on "the view" before speaking to the united nations general assembly. aides say he'll focus on the recent unrest and death of ambassador christopher stevens. >> these are not human bumps in the road. >> either one or all of them shows a person with a different perspective than the perspective i have. >> reporter: today's u.n. speech will be the president's first international address since violence erupted across the muslim world. >> also so -- >> reporter: in bilateral meetings secretary clinton was told security of their embassy is their duty and must emphasize that nuclear weapons must be kept away. despite warnings from the u.n. he declared israel will be eliminated. the u.s. responded quickly calling that comment disgusting, offensive and outrageous. ly
at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister netanyahu reinforced that by frankly praising the president for what he said at the u.n. and talking about how we are in sync. our intelligence and military communities are on the same it timeline with respect to iranian nuclear development. and i think yesterday the president -- prime minister netanyahu drew a line which frankly the president has already drawn not with a cartoon and with that kind of a fdispla but the president has said point blank american policy is not a matter of containment, it is a matter of prevention. they will not have the ability to make a bomb. and the president is prepared to back that up. so, there is no gap here. and once again, mitt romney just as he did when he stepped out early in his comments on libya, inappropriately and wrong, he is once again inappropriately and wrongly characterizing the president's policy. >> john kerry, all fired up for debate preparation, have fun with that. >> thank you. >> have fun playing mitt romney and thank you so much. thanks for being with us today. >> thank you.
, the president again, no public appearances today. earlier this week, he was at the united nations. he's been hitting the campaign trail hard. he's been dealing with the fallout from the libya attacks. is he finding enough time to even practice for the debates? >> well, you know, craig, to the extent that the command of the issues will make a difference in these debates, you can say he's getting a lot of on the job training, certainly. but to argue your premise a little bit, the president, as far as we know, is, in fact, practicing for those debates. just yesterday, he spent two hours south of the capital, about a mile from here, the democratic national committee headquarters, where we are told, on deep background, that he was, in fact, practicing on those debates. of course, the person who is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996
here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic ren th mide east, but he he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitutio protects the right to practice f spee. cchaplre going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no ol.ech that justifiesdl >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a video and were coordinated. he also delivered in his remarks a stern warning to iran ove its nuclearmbition. >> let me b clear. suroipmacy and we i believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the rness that power for peace.at we make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challge that can be contained. it would t
. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on anff t bu a nuclear weapon. >> so let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe this is sll time and space to do so. but that time is not limited. make no mistake. a nuclear iran is a challenge that can be containe ut the president's strong words weren't enough to satisfied romney. >> we can look at the record of the last four years. is iran closer to a nuclear weapon or not? we know the answer. it's closer to a nuclear weapon. >> but one tng oband ro cee , just how much they love president bill clinton now. they tried to one-up each other, in fact, in praising the former president and his, of course, the annual global initiative conference. >> if there's one thi we've learned in this ectio seas, he, itew words from bill clinton can do a lot of good. all i've got to do now is to wait for a couple of days for the bounce to happen. >> president clinton, thank you for your very kind introduction. although i have to admit. illid

at the united nations today when talking about iran. 40 days out with the surge in afghanistan looking like it did the opposite of what it was supposed to do, 40 days out with "the nework times" reporting that the romney campaign's big national security legal ideas avrentne resnd the ban torture on his first day in office. that's their big idea. that will help. 40 days out from the election, there has to be a way to build on this one small thing this republican campaign for the presidency seems capab of nd w iomo natial surit matters. if not for the country, if not for the candidate, then for the country we should try to be optimiic about this,right? mitt romney showed today he is capable, at least, of mentioning veterans and how veterans get treated even if he doesn't totally undetand the issue. e he n hale tt much, we cant let ta as starting point. i mean, in previous campaigns, yeah, we've been able to have debates about the wars. this year the republican not capable of handling that. maybe he can handle this. here's a simple ea. an american soldier gets kild in the war. thatol'silts p
is the better candidate to try to reverse the trend that the united nations government has been on in the past four years. so we'll have to see if he sharpens that attack even more today. but clearly they know they've got some challenges ahead, in new hampshire, of course the battleground state just four electoral votes there. in this tight race four votes could mean the difference between who is president and who is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are oversampling democrats. any legitimacy to any of these complaints? >> well, you know, alex one of the things that w
of terror. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked officia to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> f some time al qaeda and othegrou hnche ats kidnappings into neighboring countrs and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tgiy saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it see to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign afirs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not arning. aood me lef a' administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving statementis information the administration received has changed or wasn't compte or the most unitab ie white h
you have a key united nations gathering not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time of so much concern over iran? >> this president has been in constant contact over four years with world leaders and has been in deep consultation with prime minister netanyahu. our administration has been in deep consultation with defense and intelligence agencies in israel. this president has been focused on strengthening alliances. he's built an unprecedented global effort in terms of sanctions against iran. so this president has led and i think the question, we have an election coming up. this president committed a few things to the american people in 2008. he would restore and rebuild alliances. he would end the war in iraq. he would find and make sure that bin laden was brought to justice. he's done all of those things. by the way, let's talk about governor romney's response during this. you know, in the hours as they attacks became known in libya and the assault on our embassy in egypt, mitt romney throws out some half-baked statement. i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the

with the united nations general assembly meeting here in new york. with speeches by both the president and mr. netanyahu, this would be the perfect forum to showcase the enormous rift that republicans keep rooting for. but something funny happened on the way to turtle bay. take a listen. >> two days ago from this podium president obama reiterated that the threat of a nuclear armed iran cannot be contained. i very much appreciate the president's position, as does everyone in my country. >> that must have been a big hit with mr. romney's boston brain trust. all year long they have been mapping out the narrative on foreign policy, endless ll lly portraying the president as anti-israel. all they needed was a little third party cover and look what happened. unfortunately for poor mr. romney, it's only going to get worse as more people pick up on his oft repeated line and finally start calling it what it is. >> first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical exploitive term that is also a lie. but that doesn't mean we should be p
